George Afriyie Calls on Ghanaians to Fully Support the Black Stars to Victory Against Nigeria

Ghanaian football administrator, business man and current owner of the Susubribi Sporting Club, George Afriyie has called on all Ghanaians to massively support the Black Stars ahead of the FIFA World Cup playoffs match with Nigeria

Speaking in a video that has gone viral on social media, the Former GFA Vice President said, irrespective of the current failures that the team has encountered, it's time to show the world that "We are the black stars of Africa, irrespective of what anybody says, irrespective of our recent forms and participation and failures, this is still another opportunity for us to eliminate Nigeria". 

His video has gone viral because the Black Stars will host the first playoff match against their Nigerian counterpart, the Super Eagles at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi on Friday March 25, 2022 

"I call on all football loving funs in and outside Ghana especially all my brothers Ghanaians and sisters. This is a big opportunity for us to market our country Ghana" the Susubribi Sporting Club owner shared in the viral video. 

The video has come at a time where most Ghanaians have lost trust and confidence in our National Team, the Black Stars and the Ghana Football Association. But, George Afriyie is urging that "This is the time to prove to all football funs across the globe that we are Ghana".

"When we are determined to do it, we do it. We've done it before and we can do it again. He added" I call on every single football loving fun of Ghana to go to Kumasi Baba Yara Stadium to give massive support to cheer our black stars on to victory".

He however admonished Ghanaians to ignore the big names being bandied around but, rather encouraged us to rally support around our big names such as Daniel Amartey, Alexander Djiku, Jordan Ayew and others. 

"Let us all be in our national colours on Friday and also go and paint the Baba Yara sports stadium Red, Gold and Green" he ended.
